Microsoft Small Basic puts the fun back into computer programming. With a friendly development environment that is very easy to master, it eases both kids and adults into the world of programming. Small Basic combines a friendly environment with a very simple language and a rich and engaging set of libraries to make your programs and games pop. In a matter of few lines of code, you will be well on your way to creating your very own game!

This looks like a really great way to teach younger children the basics of programming. In a lot of ways, this reminds me of when I first learned to write Turtle basic programs. I really hope this takes off (currently it's in beta) as I'd love to teach my son how to program using this as a starting point as well.
